I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!

Sweat•"Purification Lodge" - Traditional Mexican TEMAZCAL - June 30-July 1

Sweat•"Purification Lodge" - Traditional Mexican TEMAZCAL 

WHEN:  Saturday and Sunday - June 30-July1, 2012

2012 – Is a time to discard the old ways and welcome a new culture of brotherhood and love.....

Venus goes direct in Gemini on June 27, it’s a time to be looking towards forward relationships rather than flirting with the past. It is also a time to enjoy the "spice of life". Plus with Mercury in Leo, it's a time for "childlike and innocence," especially in all forms of self expression coming from the heart. Just before the full moon on July 3, is an excellent time to complete any unfinished business or end unresolved relationships, or release anything which does not serve your higher good. Let 2012 be the year to release the past and welcome the New Culture.....

Jose Ivan Gonzalez, will be leading a traditional Mexican TEMAZCAL CEREMONY on Saturday - June 30.

This Temazcal ceremony is based on the ancient traditions of the central valleys of Mexico Tenochitlan, where nowadays Mexico City is located.

When the Spanish people arrived Mexico Tenochtitlan 500 years ago, all the sacred knowledge and the sacred traditions where hidden by the elders. All the rituals and ceremony where secret then, practiced in a forbidden way and transmitted in an oral way, from Grandparents to Parents to Grandchildren.

In the 1980s there was a gathering of the lineages of elders and the different native traditions of Mexico. They talk about the time that we are living, the end of an era and the ancient prophecies.  These prophecies mentioned there will arrive a time where the native knowledge would be brought back to the light. They say the time has arrived.

Then the elders from the different native traditions start sharing this knowledge not only with their blood lineage but also with everyone who proved to be interested, respectful and persistent enough to learn.

Elena Ross will share the PanEuRhythmy (Universal Harmonious Movement) EARLY morning on both June 30th and July 1.

This may be their last ceremony in Costa Rica as Jose and his wife are heading to Columbia. They will be available to perform the Temazcal Ceremony along the way.
